Heuer Bundeswehr *LINK*

Hello all,

We have a Heuer Bundeswehr Valjoux 230 flyback chronograph watch and since I'm unfamiliar with the details of this model I'd like to share a few photos of the movement case and dial for the forum's input. Click on the link below to see the photos.

I'd like to learn more about this watch and make sure that it is authentic. I'm also posting this on other forums to reach other Heuer, military and general watch enthusiasts.

Please view the photos and let me know your thoughts. My questions are:

Do any parts of the watch appear non-authentic?

Should the case be stamped or engraved for this model? This back is engraved.

Is the wording on the case back correct? I've seen others that are just marked "BUND".

What can the serial number tell me?

Was the movement signed on these watches? Bridge is Heuer style but the movement is unsigned.

Thank you all.
